Re: Unable to uninstall cloned app a month ago

From to ~petercxy/shelter

Hello,

System apps cannot be removed from Work Profiles once they are enabled / 
cloned. This is a limitation of Android and there does not seem to be a 
workaround other than destroying the entire work profile and starting 
over.

Regards,
Peter.

Hm, it might be related to Android 11's query limitations then. But I'm pretty sure I've worked around the issue... I'll try to take a look later.

I'm sorry but I am really not sure what exactly is happening here, especially if even "show all apps" doesn't work.... I could only assume that the system is not responding to app list queries correctly. But again, it's showing in Insular...

Hello,

Have you tried clicking "Show all apps" in Shelter's menu?

Regarding the upcoming license change of Shelter a month ago

From to ~petercxy/shelter

Dear all,

I am writing to announce that I will be changing the license under which 
Shelter is released in the upcoming Shelter release. To avoid any 
possible issues, I am announcing details of this change in advance:

1. The licensing change will be applied to the source code except the 
string resources (i.e. translations).
2. After the next Shelter release, the main portion of the source code 
will be licensed under GNU GPL v3 or later.
3. The translations will remain under the original license.

The rationale behind this license change is to avoid potential legal 
issues given that Shelter has been seeing an increase in new users

[Announcement] Shelter's custom F-Droid repo, and development preview of Shelter 1.7 a month ago

From to ~petercxy/shelter

Dear all,

Hope this email finds you well. I am aware that the project has been 
dormant for quite some time, and a lot of you have been asking about the 
state of the project. Rest assured that Shelter as a project will 
continue, and I am writing to share with you some updates about the 
project.

First of all, I would like to announce that Shelter now has a custom 
F-Droid repository, available at <https://fdroid.typeblog.net>. Shelter 
APKs downloaded from this repository is built and signed by me, and will 
be updated much faster than the version on the official F-Droid 
repository.

On recent reports about Shelter being classified as "virus" or "malicious" 2 months ago

From to ~petercxy/shelter

Hello,

I have been bombarded recently with email inquiries about Shelter being 
reported as virus or malicious software, predominantly by Huawei's 
anti-virus system, and Norton. I am hereby writing to clarify that:

1. Shelter is NOT virus or malicious software
2. Shelter is fully Free and Open Source software, and will remain so 
forever
3. As a result of (2), if you have any doubt about Shelter's behavior, 
please verify the source code of Shelter yourself. Alternatively, you 
can also use the build from F-Droid, which is guarateed to be 
reproducible from the same source code tarball downloaded from F-Droid.

Re: TrackerControl + Shelter 3 months ago

Hello,

I am pretty sure VPNs are separate in profiles since Android 10. Before 
that, I think they were shared between all profiles, but I could be 
wrong.

Re: Payment method not working in work profile 5 months ago

From to ~petercxy/shelter

Hello,

I am pretty sure Tap & Pay apps do not work in Work Profiles yet -- I 
don't remember seeing any API that could enable it as a work profile 
manager app. Unfortunately, this means that you will need to keep your 
banking app in the main profile.

[Announcement] Translation UI (Weblate) for Shelter 8 months ago

From Peter Cai to ~petercxy/shelter

Hello,

As we have recently moved to self-hosted Git server for managing the
repository, I have come to the realization that translating Shelter
has become harder because it is much less convenient to send updates
to XML language resource files via email compared to sending a GitHub
pull request, as many translators may not be developers themselves.
This has probably resulted in Shelter's i18n support being basically
stalled.

To resolve this issue, I have set up a Weblate instance where
translators can submit translation suggestions directly via a web UI:
https://weblate.typeblog.net/projects/shelter/shelter/. New
untranslated text will be synchronized to Weblate automatically and
